Absentee balloting

Postby Henry Vilas » Fri Feb 08, 2013 6:07 pm

Since Ms Vilas just had a total knee replacement she will need to get an absentee ballot by mail. I tried to get to the Madison City website for more info, but because the site was recently hacked, it is not available.

Any help?

Here's the absentee ballot request form: http://elections.state.wi.us/docview.as ... 9&locid=47

Your wife can fill it in, and then you can mail it to the City Clerk or you can walk it in to the Clerk's office if you want to expedite the process.

Anothing attempt at voter suppression by the GOP:

A Republican lawmaker is proposing limits on the hours and days voters can cast in-person absentee ballots even as such voting increases in popularity in the state.

The bill would have a heavy impact in Madison, one of several municipalities that have held extended hours on nights and weekends to accommodate in-person absentee voters.

Critics said the bill, introduced in the state Assembly late last week, would force municipalities to spend more on mail-in absentee ballots while making it harder for people to vote.

The measure proposed by Rep. Duey Stroebel, R-Saukville, would prohibit clerks from opening early, late or on weekends to accommodate voters wishing to cast their ballots before Election Day.

Sounds like a typical asshole.

Justice Scalia says, too bad for you, there is no "medical entitlement" in the constitution.
